CRM2114SFG: Carson M21™ Special Forces - Black G10 Handle - Combo Edge
Columbia River Knife & Tool

After the success of our M16 Special Forces series, we received requests from professional knife users in the military and law enforcement for the larger “Big Dog” size with a more versatile blade shape. We talked to the designer of the series, retired Sergeant Major and Knifemakers’ Guild member Kit Carson, and the M21™ special forces series is the result.

The blade is similar in shape to the Carson M21, but with the addition of a second Carson Flipper on top, resulting in a true hilt. The blade grind is a deep-bellied spear point with a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge on the M21-14SF model.

In addition to the original model with InterFrame build and aluminum scales, for 2008 we’re offering this knife as the M21-14SFG with InterFrame build, G10 scales, and our exclusive Veff™ Serrations. We use premium blade steel on both models. A black titanium nitride blade coating protects against corrosion and gives a low-reflectance finish.

The series features our patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which provides fully automatic actuation. It immediately turns the folder into a fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked. The safety still allows the quick and smooth one-hand opening and closing that our Carson series is known for. The ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access.

M21™-14SFG G10. This model features a stainless steel InterFrame build with black G10 scales. Many operators prefer G10 because of its aggressive texture, light weight, and insulating properties in very hot and cold conditions. Now you have a choice. Blade steel is 8Cr14 stainless.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing— tip up, tip down, left or right. (Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.)

The M21-14SF series is a true advance in tactical locking liner folders, and is today an even better value.

About the Knife Designer
Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, is a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Sergeant Major. He has made knives for 30 years and has been a full-time knifemaker since 1993. He is a voting member of the Knifemakers’ Guild. Kit has been an avid hunter and fisherman for over 40 years, growing up enjoying the woods and trout streams in the mountains of north Georgia. About his philosophy of knife design, he says: “I strive to follow form and function in the knives I design and build. My reputation has been built around solid working knives, both fixed blade and folders. All the time spent outdoors as a young man and the time spent around the world with the Army has strongly influenced the knives I create.” Nothing reflects this approach more than the Carson Design of our M16 series, which is built for function, not to follow fads. This highly successful knife series was named one of the Top 10 Factory Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade magazine. The M16-14M recently won a comparison test conducted by Germany’s Messer magazine.

Cons: None
best buy
I have both blades ,the one with the aluminium handles and this one. this one is only slightly superiour to the other. the only difference is the structure on the g10 handles. The aluminium handles have more of a quality feel to it, and this one will never slip out of your hands. It is your choice. I could't choose ,so I didn't.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
I have this knife and about 10 other CRKT knives. I use it everyday for outdoor work, rope cutting, firemaking, making tinder, etc...The lock system almost guarantees a fixed blade. I have pryed ( I know, don't judge) stabbed gutted, etc.. and the knife is virtually flawless. the tips of the Zeff serrations wear down, but the serrations can easily ne sharpened. Why spend $125+ for other brand?
